Good call Lars. I've interrogated all my coworkers and no one seems to know what I'm talking about. I suspect a conspiracy. I control the HVAC system in the building, it would be unfortunate if the AC suddenly stopped working in our department. I only have to break the weakest link in this chain.

I can't find waterboards on Amazon, I was hoping to find one that was Prime eligible. I was also hoping to find a cheap used one on a government surplus website, but no luck so far.

Do they have suger free other similar candy that is wrapped (Jolly rancher?) or is it only gummies with the fun?

Had a random thought. I'll be moving out soon from my current place. I like teh cats and birds. Had a cockatiel for at least 20+ years but he passed last year. I've had dogs before. And only 1 cat temporary while I lived with the ex.

Do I get another kitty (kitten preferred) & have a cool lounge cat for years to come? Or another bird, maybe a cockatoo!

Cat Pros:
CAT!
Meows?
Fun to play with

Did I mention cat.

Bird Pros
:
Exotic pet (yes, I know what I'm doing )
Interesting pet?
Can fly, chill/hangout on shoulder, learn to speak or do whistles.
No apartment fees, bc lives in cage.
Very long lifespan.

Cat Cons:
ALLERGIC
Depending on living space, cat proofing apt?
Vet fees associated with getting a new pet. My old apt needed vet visits/shots records. Apt additional pet monthly fee & deposit
Hair & shedding

Bird Cons:
Bigger birds tend to be more messy from my own experience, cage/food etc.
Untrained bird will poo on your shoulder during netflix & chill
Dust & dander from feathers
Very long lifespan.

As a fellow "that's-my-favorite-bestest-one-and-only-coffee-cup-that-I-will-use-until-I-die" owner/user, you have my sincerest sympathies.
I could probably kill for less.

Come to think of it, I'm going to go check on my cup right now.

I think large birds can be cool, but have you ever had a cockatoo? My friend lost in his divorce negotiations and had to take their cockatoo, and the damn thing never shut up - it was non-stop squawking. He couldn't even give it away.

Cat.

Why is your tuning laptop anywhere near your car? Isn't that why it spent a week+ with Vlad... And you have a track weekend in literally a few days? Not saying you shouldn't play with your tune but you don't fix what's not broken especially before the demo, ya?

What is this, 2008? It's all in the cloud my friend! Courtesy of your boss actually. Plus the machine has an SSD in it so the data is probably fine anyway. It'll take an hour to build another one with Windows 7 on it

I was disabling the EBC so I could get used to driving it on wastegate

Downside to cockatiel: turbokitties eat them. Or maybe that's an upside, depends on your POV.

Never owned a cockatoo, always wanted one - I'm immune to bird noise

Yea the cat my ex had would sit and watch the cage. But we made sure to put kitty in the room when the bird came out She mostly wanted to play with the bird or catch em mid flight, instincts


Cat is sounding good, plus another pro would be for when I have people over. Anyone can pet a cat, ladies too . Birds can be territorial with owners & not usually cuddle friendly with new people.

Yep. I dropped it in the worst possible way: halfway open from the roof of the Miata onto the concrete directly into the corner with the hinge. Hinge and screen are broken, but surprisingly everything else actually looks good. It still boots! It was a very early T60 so it was time to upgrade anyway.

Lenovos are ****. The new models have lenovo specific hardware. They upload their own firmware to everything so say ur wifi card goes out. You can buy a new one exactly teh same model but the original model.. it wont work because it doesnt have the lenovo firmware

A wifi card for a new lenovo is about 200 bucks because of the supply

Lenovo bought the Thinkpad brand from IBM and then proceeded to ruin it.

Hmm, hope my lenovo from G doesn't have 'lenovo specific' hardware.

Mine has been running great *knocks on wood*
